Water
1 cup - 200 ml

Steps

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, and cook the pasta so that it's on the firm side.
2. Put some oil in a frying pan and stir fry the ◎ ingredients. Add the ground meat, doubanjiang and miso, stir fry some more, add the soup stock granules and water, and simmer.
3. Add the cooked pasta, simmer a little and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I always make dan dan noodles with yakisoba noodles or somen noodles, but I tried making it with pasta when I was short on ingredients, and it was delicious。
